The Alzheimer Society of Ireland (ASI) is currently recruiting for its award-winning Home Based Care-Home Based Education online course for family carers of people with dementia. The ASI offers training to family carers looking after a loved one with dementia. Family carers can either be the primary carers for the person with dementia or those indirectly involved in caring. This Family Carer Training programme aims to develop family carers’ knowledge of Alzheimer’s and other dementias, and their caring skills, to enable them to respond more confidently to their family members’ needs.
It also provides opportunities for carers to meet other carers and share their experiences. Delivered by experienced ASI staff members, the course provides new information on dementia and gives participants time and space to reflect on their own caring experiences, whilst listening to and learning from others' experiences. The course is delivered in a warm, safe environment where confidentiality of all is valued and respected. Find out more and register, via: https://alzheimer.ie/about-dementia/family-carer-training/
